Our Explorers and the Bulletin Newsletter
Exploration Through Cultural Exchange – PEOPLE/PLACES/PERSPECTIVES
The mission of the Geographical Society of Philadelphia is to promote the discovery and appreciation of the many wonders of our world. The Society supports world exploration by presenting enlightening programs on travel, geography, science, history, exploration, and world cultures to its members and the public in the Philadelphia area.
As part of GEO’s renewed spirit and our commitment to you, we turn from exploration to navigation of the People, Places, and Perspectives that shape our lives. On behalf of the Board of Director and our Board President Dr. Jill Weber, we invite you to come along with us on our journey to better understand this New World!
